that cuts defense spending once again. it has $500 billion in new taxes and also cuts in domestic spending. it is irresponsible, unacceptable. it leaves their troops and our economy and ready to face the challenges of the future. or the threats of today. when i went to the steering committee to apply for this job, i explained to them the way i saw the jobless to make sure that our troops, those who we sent into harm's way would have everything they needed to carry out their missions and return home safely. everything in the way resources, training, leadership, these things are very important. and i look at what is happening with these cuts that we have seen the last couple of years and it is just irresponsible that the commander in chief, his main job should be the same that i look at as my job, only he should be looking out for the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines that he sent into harm's way. he should not send them with anything less than the told that -- the total they need. and to be stepping up and continuing to cut -- i visited with their top leaders, and they have told me that

's new regulations or his tax increases and therefore it is all the more difficult for them to expand their businesses and create jobs in america. to add to the uncertainty, the president's proposed sequestration is set to take effect this march. despite his promise, his promise to the american people that it would never actually happen, the president has yet to take any steps to undo this harmful measure. he has shown absolute indifference to the millions of americans whose livelihoods will be severely impacted by his sequestration. house republicans have twice passed legislation to replace the president's sequester with commonsense reforms that will reduce spending, preserve and strengthen our safety net for generations and preserve our national defense. this week the house will pass a budget but it will be a responsible budget that will balance. one that will aim to grow the economy, drive down unemployment, expand opportunity and prosperity for the private sector and ensure that america maintains its leading role in the world as a strong national defender. americans can do this. w

real spenged cuts for more tax hikes. the president's sequester should be replaced with spending cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance a budget over the next 10 years. the american people believe that the tax question has been settled. they know the president called for a balanced approach to the debt. combination of revenues and spending cuts, and they know he's gotten his revenue. the american people do not believe the president will use further tax revenues to lower the debt. and haven't seen this president attempt to spend his way into prosperity over the last four years, they know he'll spend it. the president doesn't believe we have a spending problem. he general winly believes the government -- genuinely believes the government spending causes economic growth. if that were true, the economy today would be thriving. it isn't thriving. the unemployment rate is still nearly 8% and rising. small businesses like the one i ran are struggling. middle class families, those lucky enough to have a job, are living paycheck to paycheck. and president obama just insisted on rais

too high taxes and if we would just cut that spending and we would have that big recovery, if that is your theory, and it is pretty much the major theory of the political party this week, then you had a bad week. we got two pieces of bad news, one was bad, one good. one was the economy shrunk in the first quarter of 2012. that is the bad news, the other is that the economy added 157,000 jobs in january. but, and this is actually even more important, it added 127,000 more jobs than we thought in november and december. so altogether, today's jobs report added more than 280,000 jobs. 280,000 to the economy. that is pretty good. but it was what those reports said about the debate we are having in washington that was really interesting. when we measure economic growth, we're not measuring all that many things. it is only four main things, at least in category, there is consumer spending, what you and i buy. there is investment, so factoring in getting a new machine, that was very slightly down. there is trade, the stuff we export, minus the stuff we import. that is a bit down.
